The Secretary of State to the Colombian Minister (Olaya)

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note, No. 1360 of December 22, 1927, informing me that the boundary treaty between Colombia and Peru signed on March 24, 1922, had been ratified by the Congress of the latter country without amendment.

This Government is very pleased to learn of the ratification of the treaty which is further evidence of the desire of the countries of this hemisphere to settle their differences by pacific means and to live in peace and harmony with one another. It is particularly gratifying to this Government to think that it was enabled through the Proces Verbal signed at Washington, March 4, 1925, to assist the Governments of Colombia, Peru and Brazil to arrive at a solution of their boundary difficulties which is satisfactory to all three countries and it is earnestly hoped that the remaining provision of the Proces Verbal may shortly be implemented by the Governments of Colombia and Brazil in order that all boundary questions between them may be definitely settled.

Accept [etc.]

Frank B. Kellogg
